The roundtable with AUSTR Wilson allowed us to discuss Pakistan’s business climate and brainstorm ways to strengthen our economic and commercial ties.”

Wilson shared USTR’s perspectives on trade and investment, including the challenges and opportunities to expand U.S.-Pakistani commerce. Private sector participants shared their views on Pakistan’s business climate and their desire to expand commerce.

Assistant USTR Christopher Wilson noted: “I appreciated the opportunity to hear directly from Pakistan’s business community about their aspirations for US-Pakistan trade relations, and to convey a summary of the US government’s policy priorities as we seek to strengthen commercial ties and Pakistan’s business climate.”
